Date:2/27/2009

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Orthopaedic surgeon Daniel J. Berry, MD, was elected to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) (http://www.aaos.org/) Board of Directors at the 2009 Annual Meeting. He will serve the Academy as Second-Vice President.

"Being an orthopaedic surgeon gives me the opportunity to have a dramatic positive effect on patients' lives," explained Dr. Berry. "I am humbled and honored to serve in this leadership role. I also look forward to dedicating myself to the opportunities and challenges the orthopaedic landscape faces."

A graduate of Dartmouth College and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Berry completed orthopaedic surgery residencies at Harvard, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. He completed his fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Currently, he serves as professor of orthopaedics, College of Medicine at Mayo Clinic and chair in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Mayo Clinic.

Active in the AAOS since 1998, Dr. Berry has served on numerous committees and task forces, including the Academy's American Joint Replacement Registry Oversight Board and the CME Courses Committee. He most recently served as president of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) and held previous leadership roles for the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS), the Hip Society and the Mid America Orthopaedic Association.

"By participating in orthopaedic organizations and societies, I have had the opportunity to work with, and learn from, a remarkably talented group of individuals who have become some of my life-long friends," said Dr. Berry.

As an orthopaedic researcher, Dr. Berry has received numerous honors and accolades including awards for clinical research from the Hip Society, the Knee Society, the AAHKS, and the Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF). He is the author or co-author of over 117 peer-reviewed publications and 62 book chapters. Dr. Berry has made scientific presentations at over 330 regional, national and international meetings.

Dr. Berry's main focus areas for the AAOS include:

  • Continuing to enhance orthopaedic patient care through innovation and patient advocacy.
  • Maintaining and expanding relationships with each of the orthopaedic specialty societies, sister U.S. and international orthopaedic organizations and societies.
  • Advancing quality orthopaedic care and orthopaedic education for each of our members.

"Dan represents all the qualities that the AAOS is looking for in the leadership of the Academy," stated John Callaghan, MD, incoming first vice president of the AAOS. "There is no one I know who represents a leader more than Dan."

When not in the operating room or seeing patients, Dr. Berry enjoys the outdoors and traveling. He is an avid fly fisherman and downhill and cross country skier. He spends any free time with his wife, Camilla, and two children, Charlotte and John.
